We have a strange request that we need to export all of our Exchange users address books into one list. I know how to export an indivduals address book from their PC, but we need all 250 users address book in one format. The only thing I came up with is the following script: Get-Mailbox -OrganizationalUnit "blah blah" | Export-Mailbox -IncludeFolders 'Contacts' -targetmailbox btester -targetfolder 'contacts' But I'm hoping there is a better way. Thanks

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Via Powershell try this:

Get-Mailbox | Select Name, @{Name=’EmailAddresses’;Expression={[string]::join(“;”, ($_.EmailAddresses))}} | Export-CSV EmailAddress.csv

    This did export email addresses but only from our GAL. Is there a way to do this for users contacts?

    Are users aware their personal address books are going to be exported? I know I would not want mine to be exported. There are personal contacts in there I do not want everyone to have. Unless your users are aware of this many poeple's personal non-business contacts are about to be exported. Are you SURE this is what you want to achieve without telling your users first? You might want to check with HR first there. Also there are many people who would not want a company to have their contact info without their permission and you are violating their rights. I caution you strongly to ask questions and notify users before going through with this.

    Yes, I completely agree with you about the privacy standpoint, but this was already taken care of. Some users who caught wind of this cleaned out their address books already. This is a management decision and we're just doing what were told.
